YouTube personality KSI battles professional boxer Tommy Fury this weekend in a much-hyped boxing showdown in Manchester, England.
KSI, whose real name is Olajide Olyainks Williams “JJ” Olatunji, is unbeaten across five previous fights, although his latest victory against Joe Fournier in May earlier this year was subsequently taken away from him after he was adjudged to have accidentally used an elbow.
Fury – half-brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who will box against Premier Bet Brand Ambassador and legendary MMA fighter Francis Ngannou later this month – has won all nine of his previous fights and he is the favourite to make it a perfect 10 on Saturday night.
Olajide Olatunji vs Tommy Fury betting odds
Premier Bet make Fury the odds-on betting favourite to win the fight at 1.26. After all, he has trained to become a boxer long before he reached fame as a contestant on ITV2’s reality television series Love Island in 2019, and has a wealth of experience to call upon as a result.
However, Olatunji AKA KSI has defied the odds before, most notably when winning his first ever fight against Logan Paul in November 2019. If you fancy the 30-year-old to upset the apple cart once again, you can bet on him at odds of 3.25.
Despite only being a maximum six-round fight, our traders are not expecting a quick knockout for either fighter, despite both of them suggesting they will knock each other out in the first round during the fight’s hype. Under 4.5 Rounds can be backed at odds of 1.99, while Over 4.5 Rounds has been priced at odds of 1.68.
What time is KSI vs Fury, and how can I watch the fight?
KSI v Fury takes place on Saturday October 14, 2023, at the AO Arena in Manchester, England.
The undercard begins at 7pm BST, and the ring walks for the main event are scheduled for around 11.25pm BST, although that is dependent on the length of the earlier fights.
The card will stream live on DAZN and DAZN PPV in over 200 countries across the globe. Depending on local regulations, DAZN is available on web browsers at DAZN.com, and they also have an app available through several TV and streaming devices.
Who is on the KSI vs Fury undercard?
Logan Paul, who lost to KSI in his only ever professional fight before impressing in an exhibition bout against legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather in 2021, will fight against Dillon Danis in the undercard’s headline feature.
The pair have been embroiled in a bitter feud on social media for several months, with Danis – who comes from an MMA background – regularly trolling Paul by distastefully involving the famous model Nina Agdal, who is Paul’s fiancée.
Paul, who is the brother of Jake Paul, has been performing as a professional wrestler in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) since April 2021.
KSI vs Fury fight prediction
All the pressure is on Fury, especially as he will be watched intently by his own fiancée Molly-Mae Hague, whom he met on Love Island and now shares a nine-month-old daughter with named Bambi. However, the same applied when Fury fought another YouTube personality in Logan’s brother Jake Paul earlier this year, and he ultimately delivered in that fight, albeit via a split decision.
In fact, Fury has failed to knock out his opponent in each of his last four fights, and we can envisage him winning on points once again here, especially with KSI’s unorthodox style likely to provide the 24-year-old with some tough questions to answer at times.
However, Fury has had one of the greatest counter-punching fighters of all-time to learn from first hand in the form of his half-brother Tyson Fury, and we expect him to hold firm for another narrow victory.
Once this weekend’s fun is done and dusted, make sure you stay tuned here at Premier Bet for all of the latest news and betting odds regarding Tyson’s upcoming fight against our ambassador Ngannou. The fight is set to take place on Saturday 28th October in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
